CustomEyes Books

Large print children's books

We don’t believe a vision impairment should stop you, or your child, from knowing the joy of reading. That’s why our CustomEyes Books in large print give them the chance to read a real book, just like everybody else.

From Dr Seuss to Shakespeare, from inspirational fiction to educational textbooks, we have over 4,200 large print books available – and counting. Each one is custom made, with font size, spacing, colour and more all tailored to your child’s individual needs.

I could read them myself without any help and started liking reading! It’s like you’re in a different world.

  3. We'll send your CustomEyes Books to enjoy in about two to three weeks, depending on the size and volume of orders being placed at that time.

I would like to say a BIG thank you too for the ones that we have already received. They are priceless during this lockdown as Gareth is a real bookworm, and we didn't realise how much he was struggling until he got his first large print book.Thank you very much!

Why order CustomEyes Books?

CustomEyes Books for a child with sight loss and/or dyslexia means children and young people can have exactly the same books as their friends and classmates. This not only helps them keep up at school, they can share books with friends too.

If your child is not comfortable using a magnifier, or gets tired using a screen, they can pick up a real book and still enjoy reading and learning.

Becoming a CustomEyes Books member is easy and completely free. And thanks to a generous Guide Dogs subsidy, all large print books are available at the recommended retail price, regardless of format.
